In two reports in 2020 (“Giving and Covid-19” and “Charity Landscape 2020”) the Charities Aid Foundation highlighted that “cashless donations have increased substantially” and “a third of charity leaders are increasingly adopting online fundraising”.
So technology, and keeping pace with it, is going to be an important concern for third sector organisations. This was highlighted by the fact that the Charity Landscape report states that 77% of charity leaders believe that “technological change is relevant to their organisation”.
But that technology is not just about fundraising and running a charity’s business operations. GDPR changed the way organisations, third sector included, had to think about confidential donor data, and as more fundraising moves online, charities have become the target of cybercriminals.
According to Ecclesiastical Insurance, a third of charities were the victim of a cyber attack in 2020, but at the same time reported that just half (52%) actually have a cybersecurity plan in place. As technology advances and plays a more prominent role in society organisations in the third sector must react and adapt to these changes.
